Chile and Ecuador face off at Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo in Santiago on Matchday 14 of the Conmebol 2022 World Cup Qualifiers in a crucial match for both teams. La Roja are now in fourth place in the standings but everything is tight between four teams. Here, you will find the lineups of both teams.

The home side has been impeccable in their last games, having a three-match winning streak, after they defeated Paraguay on Thursday. Martin Lasarte’s men will try to extend their streak to remain in a qualifying position in the table and get closer to the third place. 

On the other hand, La Tricolor are still in the third place of the standings with 20 points after defeating Venezuela 1-0. Gustavo Alfaro’s team are four points clear of their nearest competitors, but they can get too confident. 

Chile’s starting eleven 

The hosts will be without forward Ben Brereton Diaz, who has scored three goals in eight games, due to accumulations of bookings. However, Alexis Sanchez will start again, after he missed last month's games. 

This is Chile's starting lineup against Ecuador: Claudio Bravo; Guillermo Maripán, Gary Medel, Francisco Sierralta; Mauricio Isla, Claudio Baeza, Arturo Vidal, Eugenio Mena; Diego Valdés; Alexis Sánchez, Eduardo Vargas.

Ecuador’s lineup 

Meanwhile, Gustavo Alfaro will probably decide to start the same team that played against Venezuela, after another strong performance. They need a win to stay ahead in the standings and the best way is to put an assembled team. 

This is Ecuador’s starting lineup against Chile: Alexander Domínguez; Byron Castillo, Félix Torres, Piero Hincapié, Pervis Estupiñán; Carlos Gruezo, Moisés Caicedo, Ángel Mena, Alan Franco; Jeremy Sarmiento, Michael Estrada.
